Softball Canada Announces
2018 Award Recipients

Ottawa, Ont. - Softball Canada is pleased to announce the award recipients who will be recognized at the Softball Canada Hall of Fame and Awards Banquet on November 10th, 2018 in Montreal, Que. The Banquet will be held in conjunction with the Softball Canada Congress and Annual General Meeting which will take place from November 7-10. As previously announced, Sophie Bedard (Builder, Quebec), Serge Laflamme (Official, Quebec), Larry Lynch (Coach, Ontario), Gisele Vezina (Builder, Quebec) and the 1993-1996 Toronto Gators (Team, Ontario) will be inducted into the Softball Canada Hall of Fame at this Banquet. The induction of Cam Ecclestone (Pioneer, Ontario) will take place at the 2019 U19 Men’s Canadian Championship in Owen Sound, Ont.
The Kahunaverse Sports Coach of the Year award will be presented to Rod Drouillard from Lakeshore, Ont. He is the current Head Coach of the Windsor Wildcats, President of the Windsor Wildcats Organization, and an active Level III Umpire. Starting in 2004, Drouillard took his U10 team all the way through U18, improving each year, and concluding with a Gold Medal at the Eastern Canadian Championship. Then, while continuing to work with this team in a local Ladies league, he returned to the U12 level to start his coaching journey all over again with a new group of athletes. This U12 team has now been together for the better part of eight years and has qualified for the Canadian Championships in each of the last six seasons; this year earning silver at the U19 Women’s Canadian Championships losing 6-5 in an exciting eight inning game.

The Softball Canada Hall of Fame and Awards Banquet will be streamed on Softball Canada’s YouTube page starting at 8:00pm EST on Saturday, November 10 and will be available to be viewed later. A cocktail reception will begin at 6:00pm with the meal at 7:00pm.
